[topic of the week: England]
i find this is a great idea for practicing
I can start saying how my day is going on
I just woke up at 8:00 AM and now i am in my office getting bored... Not so much work to do, but it takes a long time to get finished, that's why i said i am getting bored. The weather is really sunny, 22° celsius.
After work i will go the gym, i don't really like it, i mean i get out of work very tired and the only thing i want to do after work is to watch some tv series or playing at pc games, but, staying at the pc for the work all day long isn't good for your body, so i need a bit of gym in my life.
Why don't you share your daily routine?
it will be great for starting a conversation all together again
I'm at work, too: right now I'm doing an internship in a well-known multinational Company, I work as a Human Resources generalist in the field of payrolls, benefits and all that jazz. I really like this job and I hope they'll keep me as soon as the internship ends. I also use a lot of English while working!
My jobday ends at 4.30 pm; after that, I'm meeting my boyfriend for a quick coffee and then I hope to get back home. If I'm not too tired, I'll think about going to the gym: I already went yesterday night, and as I'm a Little old I don't know of my body will accept to work out for two days in a row!
After the gym, It Will be too late for almost anything else, so I Guess I will have dinner and then go to bed and watch a movie (or more likely just bits of it) and read some book. Luckily my weekends start on friday, so after today I'll have Just One more workday and then have some rest for three days!

I use to go to the gym 3 days at weeks, but not in a row.
Is just that my work day can go beyond after 6:00 pm and that means i can be late, that's why i don't go 3 days in a row, otherwise i would have .
Sometimes i go on Saturdays too, but just because i payed for it
ps: I don't think you are an old guy . Maybe you are just like me, young outside but old inside
I was just trying to be kind
Anyway, your job seems to be very interesting, i love languages and the fact you have to use the english is fantastic
I work as computer consultant, i was very scared at the beginning, but now everything's fine, i really like it and i enjoy staying with my team, they are funny and good
Yesterday I went to my workplace but I didn't actually worked, as I had to join a compulsory security training... it started at 9 a.m and finished around 6 pm, and it really was a pain in the neck. The teacher was boring and he didn't actually speak about security or fire prevention, but just about the laws that regulate such measures. Should a fire spread out in my plant, I don't think that running around and screaming "we must read the art. 81/08!!!" would be helpful
After that, I went to Bari, where there was a local feast for Saint Nicholas, the city protector. My boyfriend and I just had a walk around the city, ate some pastries and did a little shopping in a bookstore, and then got home.
I was wishing to sleep late this morning, but my father yelled because he wasn't able to find his hat at 7 am, so I got up in the worst way I had a restful morning anyway, and went to the gym at noon. Now I had lunch and then I'm going to Altamura, a town that is located a little far from my home city, in order to go to a book presentation and then have dinner in a local restaurant

You made me laugh hard in my office
Some of my friends invited me there, but in lack of time it was impossible for me to join the feastI went to Bari, where there was a local feast for Saint Nicholas, the city protector
Did you have fun there? My friends told me it's a gorgeous feast
What's the book about you are going to see?
PS: Just to let you know, i don't often read books, i know i am a bad guy
On May 8th, they celebrate the "Barese St Nicholas feast", which recalls the fact that in 11th century a group of 62 sailors went to Myra, Turkey and stole the bones of Saint Nicholas, which are now buried under the Basilica. For the people of Bari, this is the "real" feast, and they really mean it. Given the fact that it's very close to summer and here the weather is already hot (except this year, which was very cold and rainy ) they set all the feast on the promenade by the sea. There are markets, fireworks, a scenographic historical parade and every two years the Frecce Tricolori give an acrobatic show.
I'm not quite into it, actually, because unlike the winter feast, the May feast is very messy and crowded, people go mad about it, they don't mind to step on you if they want to pet the horses of the parade, they easily get drunk and there are lots of people who set absuive stalls in order to sell sandwiches, meat and drinks. On wednesday, I had to get across a bridge in order to reach my boyfriend's house, and when I got there I found a lots of car parked on the bridge in two rows and people taking advance of the bridge in order to watch the Frecce show from a higher position. I'm glad it didn't collapse.
On Thursday, anyway, the weather was colder and people didn't go out, so the feast wasn't very crowded and I enjoyed walking around.
Do you live near Bari? If you do and you don't mind walking in crowded places and dealing with rude people, you should come next year.
The presentation I went to yesterday was about the book "Anna Ximenes" by Bianca Tragni. She is an explosive old woman from Altamura, she wrote a lot of books about local history and characters, plus she has a very peculiar attitude, you either hate her or you love her Personally I love her, I think that her books are enjoyable and well-written after all.
Moreover, her latest book went out last week and it's been published by the same company that earlier this year published my own book. It's been a pleasure and an honour to know that my book is in the same series of such an excellent writer, even though I'm a newcomer

I am from south too, u know, Sicily, and i think here is even worst than therea lots of car parked on the bridge in two rows and people taking advance of the bridge in order to watch the Frecce show from a higher position. I'm glad it didn't collapse.
I don't really get why people don't follow road's rules.... Yeah, i admit it, sometimes can happen, but people (
traffic wardens included) get used to it and it's not good because they always block the traffic.
So glad to hear that, that's a good goalher latest book went out last week and it's been published by the same company that earlier this year published my own book.
I don't know when and how, but i promise you that i will read it!
